What are your favorite reasons to spend a day on Playa del Carmen beaches? Odds are that your answers includes things like sun, sand, salt water, and fun. Unfortunately, the first three items on that list can be detrimental to your skin if you aren’t careful afterwards.
Tips For Protecting Your Skin After a Day Spent on Playa del Carmen Beaches
The following tips will help you enjoy a healthy beach glow without any negative side-effects.
- Wear your sunscreen. Of course, the first step starts before you ever hit the sand or water. Make sure to use a waterproof sunscreen. Ideally, you should apply it at least 20 minutes before skin is exposed to the sun, then reapply it every few hours afterwards. In addition to preventing sun-related skin cancer, you’ll also avoid nasty sunburns, which make you look more like a lobster and less like a sea god or goddess, not to mention undesirable post-burn peeling.
- Hit the shower. Vacations typically mean busy itineraries, making it easy to go from a day on the beach to an evening on 5th Avenue without enough time to shower and freshen up. However, all that sunscreen, sweat, and sand can have a negative effect on your skin. Your body and complexion will appreciate it if you spare an extra few minutes to hit the shower or bath and scrub those post-beach remnants off.
- Use a good moisturizer. Once you’re all clean, follow up with a good moisturizer. Oil-free products are your best bet in a humid climate like ours where dry skin is a rarity. Applying moisturizer right after you shower will double the benefits since it seals post-shower moisture inside your skin.
